    Anyone using 301 redirects for rankings? (Not from 6 months ago, as in doing them now in February 2016)

    I am 301 redirecting 8 aged domains to another aged site with relevant keywords using GSA, but so far haven't seen any ranking improvements (almost 6 days now).

    Anyone doing 301's and it's working for them?

    I dont do the spam --> domain 301 --> money site

    I just find a good clean domain, 301 it, and after 1-2 weeks you will see results.

    It just gives you a head start.

    I also used to do that alot too. Recently, i've found that google will give you the "power" of that 301 for a little while then simply ignore the links (verified with GWT). Happened alot to me in the last 3 months.

    Yes, but if you just 301 the domain (without a site, from the cpanel) and don't build anymore links, how would it boost the money site's rankings?

    Care to elaborate on how you use them? (Do you create a site first, etc. then redirect or redirect from the cpanel without a site / hosting?)

    I redirected 5 expired domains (great backlink profile with niche relevant links and decent stats), also made niche relevant content on them, sent 10k links with gsa on them and waited few days to get them indexed. After that I 301 redirected them.

    Didn't see a huge impact (maybe no impact at all, cuz I was also building backlinks). So I am thinking about to use that domains for my PBN now instead of the redirect.

    Last year I made some great experiences with 301 redirects, they were really worth it. I guess I will make some tests soon and try it one more time.

    its not a magic like before anymore..
    i have a habit of buying indexed expired domains and i find it rank faster than non indexed domains
    you can still get a power with non indexed domain, but you have to make it indexed first and wait atleast 1 month for sure to have a decent juice to pass on your moneysite

    Exactly. Why would you post something and just say, "Yes, it works." (Very pointless)
